is contended that the said orders of Government of Andhra
Pradesh are illegal and apart there from the impugned orders dated
2-5-1984 and 8-5-1984 were issued without notice to the applicant
and therefore, they are liable to be set aside.

filed denying the contentions of the applicant that the orders is-

cancellation was done as per the order of the Andhra Pradesh
Government after thorough enquiries. It is contended that there

averred in the counter that the application may be dismissed.
